Jawaab scored at Wolverhampton in November but ran below par when beaten 11 lengths over track and trip last week. CELEBRIAN makes more appeal as she ran her best race for some time when a close-up fourth on her Fibresand debut and today's longer trip should suit. Omega Omega has a bit to find with the former on latest running but Pass The Time has a shout back on the level having scored over hurdles at Taunton in November. Cape Safari has been off the track for over a year but has won three times on this surface and is worth noting for any support in the betting.
